From Claysville take US-40 E/Main St for 2.4 mi, turn right at Sr3009/South Sunset Beach Road for 0.8 mi, cemetery is on the right just after the underpass at I-70.

According to the DAR records, this is one of the oldest cemeteries in the county and was operational when the church was founded around 1811 at the site of the graveyard. In 1887, the South Buffalo UP church was moved to Claysville and was called the Claysville UP Church.

They said "the cemetery is in fair condition, rather isolated close by the roadside. Many of the old stones are crumbled down, some barely above the ground and many are not readable, Several of the older table-stones are falling if not down all together, and many of the graves have been moved to the Claysville Incorporated Cemetery."

This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1938 but the burial records are likely complete.
